The Hook: Political news, freshly caught

2005 results show Greens strong in Whistler

In a recent story on Green voters, The Tyee incorrectly reported the 2005 election results for Whistler. The Liberal party won 46 per cent of the vote and the Green Party 40 per cent in Whistler.

That riding overall (formerly West Vancouver-Garibaldi, now West Vancouver-Sea to Sky) had some of the highest Green results in the province in 2005, with 26 per cent of the popular vote, and was the only riding where a Green Party candidate garnered more votes than the NDP candidate.
